Ottawa, Jul 31 (Prensa Latina) A caravan took place this weekend in the city of Vancouver to demand the end of the economic, commercial and financial blockade that the United States maintains today against Cuba.
The activists circulated in cars through the streets of that city in western Canada with Cuban flags and posters rejecting Washington’s coercive measures.
Likewise, as part of the activities of the LGBTQ+ pride parade and festival in Vancouver, the community in solidarity with Cuba in that city defended the Cuban project of the Family Code, which respects sexual diversity and will be submitted to a popular referendum on September 25.
In this way, Cubans and friends of the island joined the call of the Bridges of Love movement to carry out actions of solidarity with Cuba in the world and to demand the lifting of the siege against the Caribbean nation.
Parallel to the caravans, numerous messages circulated on Twitter with the hashtags #EliminaElBloqueo #UnblockCuba and #PuentesDeAmor.
Precisely the movement with that name is part of the growing wave that inside and outside the United States calls for the end of the blockade and for both parties to advance along the path of understanding.
Right in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, the White House intensified the siege in an opportunistic and unprecedented manner, as the Government of Cuba has repeatedly denounced.
Under the mandate of US President Donald Trump (2017-2021), Washington launched 243 measures and sanctions against Cuba that the current president, Joe Biden, promised to reverse, but 18 months after his arrival at the executive mansion, there are hardly any signs in that direction.
